Birthday card from Peterswaldau camp

Document | Accession Number: 1996.141.1

Birthday card made by inmates of the Peterswaldau concentration camp for a fellow prisoner. Inscribed; translation, recto: "From early morning we have carried the sweet obligation to congratulate you on your birthday. What should we wish you? If you were to have a little chocolate cake today instead of the nuts and bolts [of the workshop] that would improve your spirits. Oh, now we know [what to wish you]! We wish that one week from today you will be with your loved ones and in your own place; that you will be able to be happy and free and to live a renewed life."
